Pulled in on Sat night, big mistake! Tight roads, very small pads, cars and boats parked everywhere. Don't go if your trailer is over 20' on a weekend. After Saturday we were all alone in campground, was much better camping. Sites are very sloped so take lots of blocks to level with. Enjoyed the park, but will probably look for... More

Thank you for visiting our campground at Kenlake State Resort Park! Saturdays are a very busy time for us and are very high traffic accordingly. The size of the sites are an issue. The campground was designed in a time when most folks were either tent camping or pulling a small Airstream. It is our hope to be able to... More

We came to get away from it all and we did! We stayed in a two bedroom cabin that had a view of the lake and plenty of room. Amazing views, great boating and fishing and amazing food at the lodge for unbelievable affordable prices...you can tell the chef really pays attention to detail. We will be back!

We have been going to Kenlake State Park since 2010. The ground are well kept, the views are amazing, the people are friendly and the restaurant has good food. The rooms are nice, appear to have been remodeled not many years ago. The public areas need some updating but they are clean. The best thing about Kenlake is that it... More

Thank you for the review! Watching the construction of the new bridge across Kentucky Lake has been very interesting. Once completed the bridge will offer the addition of a 10 feet wide bike and pedestrian walkway connecting Kenlake State Park to Land between the Lakes National Recreation area! More

We made reservations for weekend getaway at Kenlake State park resort on July 4th. Now it's not the newest, or most up to date, but our stay was fantastic. It's location right in the middle of Land Between the Lakes is great. Rooms, and hotel slightly out dated, but relatively clean and comfortable. The desk receptionist was super! All in... More

We chose Kenlake State & Resort Park because of its central location and variety of accommodations. There are cabins, lodge and campground to choose from and we used them all. The lodge has a restaurant and pool. We rented a pontoon from the marina for an afternoon on the lake. Cabins and lodge have Wi-fi, cable TV and air-conditioning. Great... More

We were given a cabin at the bottom of the hill. It was not easy to pack everything down to it. The cabin had trash scattered around the outside garbage can when we arrived. The cabin was not cleaned very well. Dust and spider webs were accumulated throughout. I ventured to look under the beds and found dried up fruit,... More

The ground and area are beautiful. The lodge wasn't anything to go back to visit with so many other options. The air struggled to stay cool overnight (loud all night from turning on and off), and the room (and lodge) looked like it could benefit from a makeover. It would be so nice to have a mini fridge in the... More

First of all Kentucky Lake is a beautiful place. We took the kids, grand kids, ski boat and fishing boat. We rented a slip at the marina for two nights for both boats.

I am sorry I only had one night to visit this beautiful resort property. The hotel is nice and has so many amenities-too many to list. The beds were extremely comfortable and the towels were thick and absorbant. So many hotels offer thread bare towels and 180 count sheets so the extra plush linens add so much to a good... More
